Michael Flynn will invoke Fifth Amendment

Michael Flynn will invoke Fifth Amendment
Elections
36

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination on Monday as he notifies the Senate Intelligence committee that he will not comply with a subpoena seeking documents.

That’s according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private interactions between Flynn and the committee.

Flynn’s decision comes less than two weeks after the committee issued a subpoena for Flynn’s documents as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Legal experts have said Flynn was unlikely to turn over the personal documents without immunity because he would be waiving some of his constitutional protections by doing so. Flynn has previously sought immunity from “unfair prosecution” to cooperate with the committee.

    I think he’s smart. If they give you immunity say all you want. If not I’d keep my mouth shut too. Especially, with those buffoons running the show (congress). What’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander when dealing with government.

    • ADRoberts

      You failed to understand. They very well might give him immunity because just like Scooter Libby and their wanting to get Cheney, this time they are after Trump. And IF they think they could get him, NOTHING will be held back.
      Folks. They lost the election. They did not lose their resolve to control.

  • srw

    As he said.. why should he testify.. provide them with ALL the info the say they want.. THey already have everything thru their wire taps. Illegally dumped on the orders of the Obumo ADM. Why provide them with anything. It will end up being another Scooter Libby indictment. Libby was questioned about who “leaked” Valerie PLane was CIA. Colin Powell told the Special prosecutor his aide leaked it inadvertantly. But the Special Prosecutor and Powell kept it a secret and they went after Libby…. cause what they were really after was the VP CHeney.

    • ADRoberts

      Yes, and that is proof that Powell was a conspirator with the Democrats. He was no conservative and claiming to be a Republican was a LIE. Typical of Democrats.
      God will judge.

  • mrguit

    Good for him. Why should he cooperate with those lying cheats. They would just twist around anything he says anyway. They can all suck wind. That’s about all they are good for anyway.

    • Michael Lloyd

      I would have said they can eat sh!t but that would be promoting cannibalism.

    • Robert Baron

      Funny you did not say that about the Hillary Clinton investigation!

      • dprato

        She lied under oath and got away with that as well.

      • Osamao

        No comparison. Only to a moral relativist. You’re not allowed an opinion according to your own ideology. That would make you judgmental. Right tool?

        • ADRoberts

          Dealt with him before, I believe. He is a liberal troll on a conservative site. Every wonder why?

          • Osamao

            They only come here if they’re all bent out of shape. The only time the little egg shells will leave their safe spaces is to throw tantrums.

      • ADRoberts

        Wow. You just said a mouth full. You are a liberal on a conservative web site. Not a single other person on here would come up with that accusation. WHY? Simple. Flynn has NOT been responsible for many, many deaths, including the ones in Benghazi. Flynn did not us an unsecured email devise in an effort to prevent America from knowing about her SELLING her office for contributions to HER and Bill,s family foundation.
        So what did Flynn actually do? I will even give you leeway. What can you IMAGINE that he might have done? YOU HAVE NOTHING on Flynn. Just his stupidity. But with Hillary, we have more than 20 years of corruption, drug dealing, financial corruption, and DEATHS.
        Want to spout again. lol

      • mrguit

        She got off Scott free. If you think what Comey did had anything to do with her not getting elected you need your head examined. She ran a totally flawed campaign. Thought by only campaigning in Philly she could win PA, didn’t realize how much the people of Michigan, & Wisconsin blamed people like her for their woes. Had no idea that dissing the coal miners would lose her West Virginia and PA too. What a dummy. Not a good mathematician was she? Won the Popular vote cause of California & New York. The 2 most corrupt states in the union. Take those 2 states away and it’s a Trump Land Slide electorally and by the popular vote. But sad to tell, only the electoral makes The President. Her and her campaign did not do their homework. And thank God they didn’t. We have a man who will possibly become our greatest president if the corrupt elites leave him alone to do his job.

  • Michael Lloyd

    Smart move on his part by not caving in to the publicity seeking crap hawks’ BS kennel and stable show. It has now been “leaked” that he isn’t going to say anything or provide any information. Now, we wait for the Fake News “fake leak” telling us what he didn’t say or provide.

  • Dexter L. Wilson

    Comey has already said he wasn’t asked under oath in a hearing.

    Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire! Proof Comey’s Memo is Phony (Video)

    Former FBI director James Comey came forth with a memo after he was
    fired by President Trump. He tried to state that Trump attempted to
    persuade him to drop an investigation against former national security
    advisor, Michael Flynn. However, the White House pushed back, and they
    pushed back hard. The claimed that no such thing ever happened, and
    Comey himself may have proved that to be true, before he ever even sent
    out his phony meme.

    Comey actually stated, under oath, that no one has ever asked him to stop an FBI investigation. He stated this on May 3, 2017 .

    As Breitbart reported, here is how the conversation went:

    “So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the
    Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt
    that FBI investigation?” Hirono asked.

    “In theory yes,” Comey answered.

    “Has it happened? Hirono asked.

    “Not in my experience,” Comey responded. “Because it would be a big
    deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an
    appropriate purpose.”

    “I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a
    case there, and so you ought to stop investing resources in it,” Comey
    said. “But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop
    something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal.

    “It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey said.

      FACT: On three separate occasions Comey had a criminal case against Hillary Clinton. Did she ask him to drop the investigation? Most certainly. IF Trump had asked him to drop the witch hunt for Flynn was that comparable to Comey being asked to drop the investigation into the Clintons? Not even close. Yet he DID drop the charges against Hillary. And he tried to CLAIM that he was asked to drop the investigation against Flynn.
      Folks, get your head on straight. Comey is dirty. Has been from DAY ONE.

      • Dexter L. Wilson

        there is a Clinton Comey connection:
        Corruption

        (Angry Patriot) – As the dust settles behind Comey after his exit
        as Director of the FBI, new unsettling connections between Clinton and
        Comey have come to light.

        Most strikingly, former FBI Director James Comey’s brother is a
        lawyer for the firm that manages the Clinton Foundation’s taxes — and
        that is just the beginning of the odd connections. (via Big League Politics)

        Comey worked as a lawyer for Lockheed Martin up until 2010. During
        his time there, he had accumulated over $6 million. As Comey left, the
        mega-corporation decided to join the Clinton Global Initiative.

        After Lockheed Martin started working with the Clinton Global
        Initiative, they were awarded 17 major contracts from then-Secretary of
        State Hillary Clinton.

        After leaving Lockheed Martin a very rich man, James Comey was
        appointed to the board of the British financial institution HSBC
        Holdings. The bank is also an affiliate of the Clinton Foundation.

        James and his brother Peter appear to work in tandem to avoid
        revealing their pay-to-play practices. James Comey holds the mortgage on
        his brother’s house in Virginia. The corruption is absolutely rampant —
        it’s like they’re not even trying to hide it!

        Peter Comey is the “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the
        Americas” for the Washington Law Firm DLA Piper — which was behind the
        2015 audit of the Clinton Foundation.

        DLA Piper is one of the largest all-time donors to Hillary Clinton’s
        election campaigns. Despite this connection, the law firm still manages
        the foundation’s taxes. This is a clear conflict of interest.

        Essentially, the FBI Director had a direct financial connection to
        Hillary Clinton through his brother’s law firm. The pro-Clinton law firm
        DLA Piper reward the Comey brothers financially while the FBI director
        was supposed to be leading an investigation into Clinton.

        This behavior is disgustingly typical of the Clintons, who often
        trade their political clout for their own financial interests. In this
        case, the Clintons were offering financial incentives to the man who was
        supposed to be leading an impartial investigation into their behavior.

        The numerous connections between the Comey brothers and the Clintons
        are too many to ignore. Comey was compromised, so it is a good thing
        that Donald Trump removed him from office.

        Essentially, wherever James Comey goes, Clinton Foundation money
        isn’t far behind. Thank goodness we have Donald Trump to
        drain the swamp.

          Can you get this information to all of the people in Congress? it would be a great service. But I guess, they probably already know.

        Sorry. But the Republicans are WORSE. WHY? Because the pretend to be conservative. They pretend to represent Americans. They pretend to be good men.
        The Democrats don’t even pretend any more.

          But Democrats are fascists now. I didn’t like the feeling of being “Ruled” under their Chairman Bao. I agree though. They both suck but……………. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7a5b04273af4c9355b1ec9c396bb35efbd394b8e3c3cb602d6e3dca7eefd5f0b.jpg

            We left God back in the 50’s and 60’s. And who would argue that God would not judge us and punish us as a nation for what we did to HIM.
            Want to claim that is merciful and forgiving. Yes, to those who repent AND turn their lives around.
            I will point out that He is JUST and demands ONE thing from human beings. That we accept HIM as Lord.

        You are right sir you and I are on the same page. I am 70-year-old Vietnam veteran fought communism back in the 60s,I know what it’s like and I don’t know what smells like, and the so-called communist a.k.a.

      Can we plead the second?

      “When in the course of human events……” Time for a revolution is when the situation seems to be beyond hope and the wicked are in charge.
      First pray.
      Second obey II Chronicles 7:14.
      Then, pray again.
      Lastly, trust John 14:1-3
      IF God tells you to, then go to war.

  • ADRoberts

    First thing I want to know is exactly what evidence they have RIGHT NOW. It looks very much like this is a witch hunt and they have nothing. Typical of the leftist liberals and in line with the wicked corruption of the liberals. Since there is NO evidence forthcoming, and we know how this Mueller guy is expected to act, (dragging out this investigation into the NEXT century) there is no reason to cooperate with them. With the media having the ability to IMAGINE that Trump compromised national security, without a shred of evidence, I wouldn’t cooperate with them either.

    FACT: We know of ALL of the contact and contracts Hillary and Podesta have had with Russia. LOTS of it and plenty of corruption as indicated by the “contributions” made by Russia and the HUGE TAKE OVER of 25% of our uranium. This is NOT like they did not have enough uranium of their own. No this was a way to substantially reduce the amount WE had access to. THAT is strategic and is genuine bona fide, TREASON.

  • Flynn is taking the 5th trying for amnesty. He will only get amnesty if he provides sufficient information against those higher in Trump’s organization (possibly Trump himself).
    Watch the Comey testimony. Who are you going to believe — Comey or Trump who is a known liar?
